How to make the best Nutella Stuffed Deep Dish Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie

If you’re a fan of Nutella and cookies, then you’re in for a treat with this Nutella skillet cookie recipe. This indulgent dessert is perfect for sharing with friends and family, and is sure to satisfy your sweet tooth. 

Here’s the general recipe: whip up cookie dough in a large bowl, layer in a Nutella center, then bake until golden brown. Read the full recipe below. 

Expert Nutella stuffed cookie tips

  1. Make sure you let your wet ingredients like the butter and egg come to room temperature before adding to your flour mixture. Nobody wants lumpy, hard-to-mix ingredients, am I right?
  2. When it’s time to spread the Nutella on top of the cookie dough, don’t be shy! Grab a spoon and slather that stuff on there. The more Nutella, the better, as far as I’m concerned.
  3. Now, here’s the important part – don’t overmix your cookie dough! If you go too hard on it, your cookie will come out tough and chewy. So, once you’ve added your dry ingredients, just mix until everything is combined and then stop. Easy peasy!
  4. After you’ve baked your Nutella skillet cookie to a nice golden brown, make sure to let it cool for a few minutes before you slice it up. Trust me, it’ll be worth the wait.
  5. And hey, if you don’t have a cast-iron skillet lying around, don’t sweat it. Any oven-safe pie dish will work just fine.

The kids and my husband loved it – and the recipe was easy enough – you just mixed everything in a cast iron skillet and then popped it in the oven. 

But I thought the cookie was kind of dry so decided I would try again.

In my research I found lots of cookie recipes, so I decided that I would use a regular chocolate chip cookie recipe I had with just one little modification.

How to serve Nutella Skillet Cookie

When serving, slice the chocolate hazelnut Nutella skillet cookie into wedges and enjoy while still warm for a gooey cookie experience. The secret layer of Nutella adds extra richness and decadence to the classic chocolate chip cookie, making it a true crowd-pleaser. 

For your next dinner party or cozy night in, this Nutella skillet cookie recipe is sure to impress.

Deep Dish Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe Variations

Feel free to get creative with your serving ideas. Personally, I love to top my Nutella skillet cookie with a scoop of ice cream, a drizzle of caramel sauce, and some chopped nuts. And If you’re feeling really decadent, add some chocolate chunks to the recipe. The world is your oyster. Go wild!

So I stuffed my cookie with a huge scoop of Nutella – come to think of it probably two scoops. 

OMG!  I think you are really gonna love this recipe!

Where did I get my inspiration for this recipe?

The first time I made this recipe was last March – we had a family dinner, so it was a good time to try it out.

The kids and my husband loved it – and the recipe was easy enough – you just mixed everything in a cast iron skillet and then popped it in the oven. 

But I thought this deep dish cookie was kind of dry so decided I would try again.

In my research I found lots of cookie recipes, so I decided that I would use a regular chocolate chip cookie recipe I had with just one little modification.

The modification? Yep you guessed it. The jar of nutella in the cupboard was calling me. 

I decided that I was probably the only food blogger in the world – well maybe North America – who wasn’t making recipes with Nutella in them. 

Not by choice you understand, I just didn’t get what all the fuss was about. But pieladybakes.com is not about me!  It’s about what my readers – YOU – want to see!

binary comment

So I stuffed my cookie with a huge secret layer of gooey nutella to form a new recipe.

I had to bake the cookie a little longer – another 10-15 minutes. Once it cooled a bit I added a scoop of vanilla ice cream – do you have Moose Tracks ice cream where you live? It’s so awesome, full of peanut butter cups and other good stuff.

The best part? I then drenched the warm chocolate chip cookie with my special Salted Caramel Sauce. The combination of chocolate chip cookie, chocolate, ice cream, hazelnut chocolate and salted caramel – well the result is kinda perfect if you ask me.

So I now understand why people are so passionate about Nutella! This nutella stuffed chocolate chip skillet cookie was simply superb. 

Kindness and Cookies

You may be wondering:

What does kindness have to do with a skillet cookie?

Let me tell you…

Kindness has been on my mind more than usual this week.

Some call it ‘pay it forward’, or ‘lightening someone’s load’, that kind of thing. 

We are bombarded every day with crisis after crisis. I think that’s why we begin to notice small acts of kindness.

So when I saw someone give a cold bottle of water to a homeless person on my way to work, I reacted in kind and gave some money to the next homeless person I encountered. I’ve done this before to be sure, but not with as much thought.

And in a world where the news feeds are often filled with fear and hate these days, I remembered a post one of my friends shared with me on Facebook – well me and probably several thousand of her other friends.

It was about a man who was sitting in McDonald’s watching a young woman with her little boy. She was feeding him his Happy Meal and she looked really hungry. So the man anonymously ordered her lunch. 

I’m sure you’ve seen it but if you haven’t here is a link….  the part that resonated with me was – “Life is hard. Always be willing to make someone’s life a little easier. Little things make a big impact.” There it was.

I carried that feeling closely with me all week and I really wanted to share it. I hope it lightens your day too and that this nutella stuffed pizookie sweetens it!
